This episode of Bits and Bytes is about using the computer to help teach things — what's called Computer Assisted Instruction, or CAI for short. To understand what CAI is all about, we're going to go on an excursion into two related fields: programmed instruction and Artificial Intelligence. Bits and Bytes was a Canadian television series, produced by TVOntario in 1983. It starred Luba Goy as the instructor, and Billy Van as the student. For more information, see...

An article which argues the case for extended versions of BASIC is presented in this newsletter. In addition, a booklet is attached describing a Project Solo module which is a "discovery approach" to mastering the fundamental concepts of calculus through the use of interactive computing.

A summary of the current features of the New BASIC System (NBS) as used by Project Solo is presented. A program is given which provides drill-and-practice routine where the random generator output is biased to favor selection of problems on which the student needs most practice. The program shows the use of NBS string functions to find a numerical quantity in a string response. Another program demonstrates the use of multiple statements in NBS.

Intended for the experienced TUTOR author who needs a quick reference for the form of a tag and for some of the restrictions on commands, this summary does not discuss the fine details of the TUTOR language. Brief descriptions of the purpose and the tag are provided for each command. The commands are grouped in nine categories: calculating (C), data keeping (D), file operations (F), judging (J), managing sites (M), presenting (P), routing (R), sequencing (S), and terminal resident processing...

Fill in tests (FIT) are composed and printed by the computer; the tests are machine scorable as well. Two-digit code numbers are assigned to words and numbers in a vocabulary or answers. FIT also permits the use of questions which demand student-constructed responses. FIT is a recognition test, but given a sufficient vocabulary list, it can become a recall-type test.
